Buchner 1940 p. 70 already noticed that the titles 36, 5 to 37, 3 (new count: 40, 5 to 41.3) from the B-version of the Lex Ribuaria were inserted between LS (K) 36 and 37. He believed that the text was supposed to have been inserted in the following Lex Ribuaria to substitute the A-version, but had mistakenly been added to the Salic law. According to Buchner, the insertion derived from a medieval template, because the unknown 16th-century scribe copied his models verbatim. This statement is absurd, since one is left wondering why the text was not inserted directly in the correct spot of Lex Ribuaria. Rather, it can be assumed that the medieval copyist added the titles on the wergild of clerics and the dos of women intentionally, because these topics were missing in the Salic law. Buchner also did not notice that the present version of the Lex Salica has certain peculiarities. For example, some otherwise unrecorded texts follow after LS (K) 36, 3:
98r: Si quis in messem alienam super noctem introierit per furtum aut furaverit aut animalia vastaverit et ibi invenerit per f__ctum [?] per fortiam expoliatum, cum manibus ligatum ante seniores ab ipso furtum praesentare faciat et cum hoc iudicatum habere[?] sunt den. DC q. faciunt sol. XV cul. iud.
Si quis in messe aliena expalmitraverit et ibi inventus fuerit, CXX den. q. faciunt sol. III culp. iud. Si quis per malum ingenuum incurrit alterum vel in casam vel ubicumque miserit aliquod quod furatum est nesciente domino cuius possessio est, et ibidem inventus fuerit ille qui miserit [=LS (K) 36, 5], si servus aut CXX ictos accipiat aut dominus pro servo suo sol. VI componat, sed si ingenuus fuerit, sol. XV cul. iud.
